Software Engineer, College Redfin
Are you a college senior on a mission to change the world? Make an impact? Build a thing of beauty? We get it.
Redfin is a well-funded startup taking on the Real Estate industry's most audacious, complex e-commerce transaction: guiding buyers from offer to close and guiding sellers from listing to close. We're trying to do it better, faster, and less costly, where the customer always comes first.
As a software developer at Redfin, your job is to make searching for a home as easy (and addictive) as searching for your favorite LOLcat pic.
We've built a bleeding-edge real estate search site with hordes of rabid fans and an iPhone app that was featured in Apple's TV ad campaign, but we're not even close to done. Come help us create the next set of mobile, UGC, and next-generation user interface features that will make Redfin the best site about real estate ever.
Who you really are: You are a rockstar developer who thinks like an end user, who knows that 90% done is only half done, and who can build rock-solid code that will withstand millions of users banging on it. You love beautiful, simple user interfaces, and you constantly wonder what you could have done to make your last project simpler. You love working with a smart, talented team, because you know that makes you better, and when you disagree, you disagree constructively, with respect for everyone else's opinions and ideas.
The Tools: Great engineers want to work on emerging technologies. Our website is built with Java, Spring, JSP, Postgres, Hadoop, Hibernate, HTML, CSS, JS, dojo, and various other tools/libraries. In production we run on Linux. On our desktops we mostly run Mac and Windows, but some opt for Linux. We use Eclipse, Maven, SVN, and Hudson.
What you'll get from us: Support and resources to continue learning, a brilliant team with which to collaborate, an office in downtown San Francisco close to all the action, and a commitment to your career so you can grow with the company under a management team that has experience building start-ups into profitable, publicly traded companies.
